Pimentón is Spanish for ground dried red pepper, known in English as paprika. Pimentón is so prevalent in Spanish cuisine (such as chorizo and paella) that there are different grades and regions that lend specific characteristics, as in wine. The highly sought Spanish paprika is from the Extremadura region (next to Portugal). Adolfo uses La Chinata brand; see "Find It Fast," below. Pimentón comes in three varieties--sweet and mild (dulce); bittersweet, medium hot (agridulce); and hot (picante)--and normally stays fresh for up to six months.
